cnn/orc numbers tonight on the race in ohio. you all know how important ohio is. president obama holding a four-point lead in this new poll, slightly outside the margin of error and significantly right at the crucial 50% mark. so the question is, what is driving the numbers in ohio right now? chief national correspondent john king has some answers. >> well, anderson, that narrow ohio lead for the president is within the poll's sampling error but it is yet another poll showing the president with a small persistent lead in the state of ohio. let's take a closer look at why it is happening in this state that is so important in the pick for president. here's the main reason right here. governor romney gets the republicans. the president gets the democrats but at the moment, in our survey, the president has a narrow lead among ohio voters who define themselves as independents. that is the battleground in a big battleground state, if you win the independents you are likely to win. governor romney close but the president with an important edge among independent voters. there's also an a

give $5 million to any charity if president obama would just release his passport records and his college transcripts. guess what! i will give $10 million to any charity if donald trump will just shut up and go away! of course, i won't lose $10 million because he'll never shut up. we'll get into that and a whole lot more. first we start with getting the current update. the latest current news roundup from lisa ferguson out in los angeles. hi lisa. good morning. >> hey bill. good morning everyone. john mccain is unendorsing richard mourdock. the indiana senate candidate is underfire this week for calling rape pregnancies an intentional gift from god. coincidentally, mourdock is the only senate candidate mitt romney has endorse and cut an ad for this season. he just released the ad in support of mourdock monday and the rape comments came tuesday night. mccain said he will no longer support mourdock unless he apologizes for those remarks but most republicans are staying in mourdock's corner. santorum is saying i

governor romney than we saw on primary season. in primary season president obama is the poll giapologist a weak commander in chief. what i found stunning last night, tamron, time and again, syria, egypt, afghanistan, bin laden, so many different things, the drones, it was governor romney saying me, too. there was no daylight between them. that is not the mitt romney that captured the gop nomination. >> lois, i said smooth or rough move because this is all last night, at least a lot of the analysis this morning is point of view. it's one of those things of what did you want to see? you have conservatives and republicans that said governor romney did a great job. they don't see any deception or any malpractice, if you will, political malpractice in the transition he's made when you look at the columns and op-eds from democrats. they say governor romney was weak and did not have a game to bring on foreign policy. are we simply at the point no matter what happened at that debate last night, you have the pundits and writers who have their story line and point of view, and that's what we see f
obama wrapped up a 48-hour, 8-state battleground blitz in cleveland late last night and with a hoarse voice went after a message he's been dealing all week long. romney's trustworthiness. >> trust matters. you know what, ohio, after all these years, you now know me. you know that i mean what i say. >> and almost the exactly same moment 150 mys west mitt romney took the starj in one of the great names in battleground politics, defiance, ohio, and he borrowed a page from the president's 2008 page book calling himself the president of change. >> this is a time when america faces big challenges. we have a big election and we want a president who will actually bring big changes and i will and he won't. >> well, we know ohio has been the ultimate bellwether in presidential elections for the last 50 years and the president's been putting a big emphasis on early voting both here and in other battleground states which is why he decided to be the first president, well, early vote and dit yesterday in chicago. >> we need some i.d. >> oh, no. >> i got my driver's license here. >> yes, by law even

[ laughter ] >> but where on earth is the serious press coverage of their exchanges on libya, on afghanistan, on terrorism? >>> plus, obama's media blitz from brian williams to jay leno to mtv. >> what are you most worried about? malia getting a driver's license, malia going out on a date, or malia being on facebook? >> i worry about facebook right now even just for security reasons. you know, she doesn't have a facebook page. >> are the media giving the president a friendly platform? i'm howard k

religion shows a gender gap among voters that is similar to recent presidential election. obama is pulling more support among women voters. the gap appears to be driven less by issues such as reproductive rights, abortion of course we see low salient issue for most voters including when by instrument more bite social safety net concern. at what's interesting is in recent weeks as the romney campaign has been able to close the gap despite this data showing that women are less likely to believe that programs create a culture of dependency and despite the data showing that women can more about health care as an issue. women like men are most likely to say that the economy matters in their decision, so it appears that the romney campaign and this is on how the economy is affecting women, namely that there more women in poverty under the obama administration, and the recession has hit women hard in terms of job loss. this message may be making traction among women voters. when it comes to catholics, there are several points to emphasize. while catholics overall are more supportive of obama in t
are in the homestretch of the race for the white house. president obama and mitt romney met to debate foreign policy at lynn university in boca raton florida, last night and when it was all over, romney's running mate, congressman paul ryan, picked a winner close to his heart. >> i think governor romney won this debate and you know why i think he won it? because americans, for a third time now got to see a man ready to become a great president. >> eliot: the polls suggest voters saw the debate a little differently. undecided voters in a cbs news poll favored president obama's performance by 30 points over mitt romney. registered voters in a cnn poll gave the president an 8-point lead over his rival and voters in 11 swing states gave mr. obama an 11-point debate margin over romney in a public policy poll. those swing state voters also favored the president by 6 points when they were asked who they planned to support. the big sur prices last night for much of the debate, mitt romney seemed more concerned with obscuring the differences
days. they don't want people to think they can get out of the box and undo obama care and slash spending on day one. they want time to put together a pragmatic budget. they sigh that as a priority. it's one of the reasons that paul ryan and the house budget committee chairman ended up as the vice presidential candidate. >> essentially he can't do what he promised during the primary? >> not in the first 100 days. >> jonathan, i'm going to call you j-dog. what? >> your own nickname? >> yeah. we have our own thing going. matt bey has a column in the times today how bill clinton may have hurt the obama campaign suggesting that bill clinton's advice to barack obama to paint mitt romney midway through the campaign as a severe conservative instead of sticking with the cemented narrative that mitt romney was a flip-flopper may end up hurting obama in the end. it worked for bill clinton because he was seen as a centrist. he was viewed by voters as a progressive and people see mitt romney as a flip-flopper. what you are your thoughts? >> the real reasons that barack obama has to worry abo
for a couple weeks, probably obama by a few points now. i have absolutely no idea. and a strange thing has happened, mika. you actually have, instead of the romney people acting a little nervous and crazy, which they have, we have for a year, you now have democrats that are starting to move into this panic phase. you know, we could lose this thing. i think for the first time, they're getting really nervous. >> i have a lot of people -- we've seen it together -- coming up to us going, what's going to happen? what's going to happen? it is a real nail-biter at this point. >> it is a toss-up. >> i think that's fair to say. i'm not sure where these polls will end up in the long run in terms of being correct, but you know what? they are at least a touchstone for the conversation. >> this race right now could not be closer, john. >> you think about the trend line just in this poll, just to stick with the consistency, the nbc/"wall street journal" poll, people say it's the gold standard for polling. i don't disagree. in early september, obama coming out of the convention, a five-point lead with li
on the stage. i hope we do not see a replay of our first debate president obama and romney, but i see that, with a foreign policy, that they are much more prepared than they would be. >> because of the moderator or because of the format, james? what do you not want to see a repeat of? >> in the format. the format is the same, but since they have been through it and since president obama will be prepared to night, unlike the first debate, it should be a good one. i am looking forward to seeing it. >> that me turn to perdue university about what to expect tonight -- purdue university, about what to expect tonight. >> what formula the you think we can get to around a theatrics that we can see? >> are you looking for tonight? >> i get frustrated when the one on one convicts are sensationalized. if the moderator takes more of an active role and make sure their presence is known, you see a lot more less of it. >> the candidate had prepared for this debate, all of the debates, they have their line set. not rehearse, but impromptu. we have moved from the multiple moderator's to the single moderato
obama with respect to the swing state. the latest "time" magazine poll that came out yesterday showed the president ahead of mitt romney by 5 percentage points. our cnn polling of polls has a smaller advantage for president obama by three points but as you said, he has to win this state to i guess join the long list of republican candidates who went on to the white house. they've won ohio. he has to do that if he wants to follow that trend. there are other ways to get here if he doesn't win the state. he's going to be talking about the economy, of course. we've been hearing that over the last couple days and yesterday he sort of repackaged his stump speech and message framing it in a way to communicate to families saying what's in the best interest of your family, how are the housing prices affecting your family, how is the national debt affecting your family. we may be hearing more about that in just a few moments from now. i have to tell you, as you know, ashleigh, there's been a distraction for the campaign over the last 24 hours and has to do with indiana republican senate candida
. meanwhile the obama camp has released a new ad taking aim at mr. romney's economic plan. >> in here it's just you. no ads, no debates, just you. so think about this. mitt romney's plan rolls back regulations on the banks that crashed our economy. medicare voucherized. >> president obama also talking about avoiding the fiscal cliff which would trigger tax hikes and spending cuts two short months from now. he says he wants to work with congressional republicans on it. >> i've said to folks, i'll go to capitol hill. i'll wash john boehner's car. i'll walk mitch mcconnell's dog. i'll do whatever is required to get this done. >> president obama heads to new hampshire a bit later today for a stop in nashua. vice president biden is scheduled to hold an event in lynch burg, virginia. >>> now we go to ohio where nbc's ron mott is on that bus tour with paul ryan. hello to you ron again. where are you in the many stops on that bus tour today? >> reporter: hey there, alex. i've got to get my back stretched out. we've got five stops as you mentioned here today. three more tomorrow. eight in total.
when he stood up to that woman who said to his face that obama was an arab. but he was a prisoner all of those years in hanoi. romney has never served his country. the only prisoner he's been captive of are the right wing haters that are smelling up the republican campaign. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "politicsnation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris, and thanks to you for tuning in. 13 days until election day. here's where the race stands. the "new york times" 538 blog shows president obama leading the national poll average with 50% of the popular vote. mitt romney has 48.9%. and according to 538, if the election were held today, the president would win re-election well 288 electoral votes. romney would get 250. it takes 270 votes to win the white house. a brand new ohio poll gives the president a five-point lead in that crucial state propelled by a two to one average in early voting. as of tonight, 6.5 million people have already voted in this election. with over a million voting in just the last 24 hours. we'll have much more on the e

"newsroom" starts now. >>> good morning to you. happy thursday. i'm carol costello. thank you so much for joining us. president obama is about to take the stage in tampa. and he'll have some big news to celebrate with his supporters. just over an hour ago, republican with vast crossover aappeal announced his endorsement for obama. listen to this from former secretary of state colin powell. >> i voted for him in 2008 and plan to stick with him in 2012 and i'll be voting for he and vic
showdown between president obama and governor mitt romney. tomorrow is final debate on foreign policy could michael or break the election now, only 16 days away. at stake momentum with millions of voters expected to tune in. there is a brand-new "wall street journal" poll showing just how tight this race is. take a look. president obama and governor romney tied at 47% among likely voters. john roberts is live at the site in boca raton, florida. what is the race looking like there? >> vast looking very tight. you mentioned the "wall street journal" poll. that is a battle ground states. this is where things could change. we were talking about how important these debates are. it's difficult to overstate because unlike most election cycles these debates have been moving the numbers. the goal for governor romney is to hang on those solid gains he has made since the first debate three weeks ago. he has been heavily involved in debate prep, hunkered down for last couple of days. took some time out to attend church with his wife. then earlier this afternoon presided over a ceremonial coin toss at a
if obama does win. some republicans say we should always have tax increases. others like tom cole say if obama wins -- it is going to be a problem for speaker boehner. remember, banner and the president seemed so close to having a grand bargain. a lot of those ideas will go back on the table. including raising the eligibility age. >> do in the talks but kicked back up between the speaker and the president? >> yes. whether there is a deal or not, it is going to be a harry reid, john boehner, president obama conversation. barring the outcome of the election. but it will have to cut some deals. because the rest of them will be so divided there will not be able to do anything. speaker boehner are is going to have to except the split. there is no way he can get them all to vote for a deal. >> mitch mcconnell could be in the middle. >> what is governor romney wins the presidency than a? >> i think if he wins, they do call the whole thing off. it is very hard to argue that he does not deserve the right to have his own budget. you will do that and the first few months of 2013. it is hard to i
